Modern Slavery Act Statement
According to the Modern Slavery Act 2015, commercial organizations that carry out all or part of their business in the United Kingdom are required to publish a transparency statement informing consumers about the efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking.
We, Printful, Inc. (“Printful,” “we,” or “us”), are a part of the industry that can educate consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that responsibly manage their supply chains. Printful is committed to ensuring ethical and fair-labor practices within our own operations and we seek and expect from our suppliers to do the same.
The structure of our organization, business, and supply chains
Printful is a print-on-demand order fulfillment and warehousing company with a team of more than 1,000 people working across six locations in the US, Mexico, Spain, and Latvia. We also contract a wide variety of various suppliers located in the US, the EU, and other countries and regions to provide us with the materials for our production.
Printful policies in relation to slavery and human trafficking
When we partner with suppliers, we ask them to sign an Anti-slavery or Forced labor certificate acknowledging that the supplier as well as its subcontractors will comply with all applicable laws that prohibit slavery and human trafficking. Printful has also drafted a Supplier Code of Conduct that intends to set forth our standards and expectations with respect to key areas of corporate responsibility, including a requirement for our suppliers not to support forced labor and not to collaborate with organizations that use illegal employment practices.
Due diligence processes
Although Printful does not currently provide specialized training on slavery and human trafficking to its staff working with supply chains, we require that all employees engaged in the sourcing process comply with our policies which prohibit slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain. Within our own internal operations, a part of our initiative to mitigate the risks for slavery and human trafficking is the implementation of internal policies which include Whistleblower, Anti-bribery, and Health and Safety policies.
Currently, Printful does not conduct independent audits or unannounced inspections to our direct suppliers. Nonetheless, we plan to establish such protocols to be implemented in the future.
